Burglaries: Preconceived ideas and advice

Preconceived ideas about burglaries:

  1. Burglars use the holiday period to carry out their crimes: No, the risk is high throughout the year and above all over Christmas when you're having fun with your family.
  2. Burglars work at night: On the contrary, they are more active during the daytime between 10 AM and 4 PM when you are shopping or getting the children from school.
  3. Burglaries only happen to others:  With one burglary every two minutes in France, the risk is high.
